Celtic complete signing of former Liverpool defender Kolo Toure
The 35-year-old has reunited with Brendan Rodgers after signing a one-year-deal.
Celtic have completed the signing of former Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City defender Kolo Toure on a one-year deal.
The 35-year-old has signed for the Scottish Premiership champions and is expected to be selected as a wildcard pick for next week's Champions League qualifier against Astana.
The centre-back had been a free agent since being released by Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool at the end of last season, making 46 appearances over three years for the Anfield side.
Toure underwent a medical in Glasgow on Saturday and was back at Ross Hall on Sunday to complete the switch to Celtic.
Brendan Rodgers worked with Toure as manager of Liverpool and underlined the experience the centre-back will help bring to the Hoops' squad.
"I brought Kolo into Liverpool to add that bit of experience and help to the centre-halves there at the time," Rodgers told the club's website.
"You saw from his impact there and in particular last season, he was a very important player for Jurgen Klopp towards the end of last season, playing in the Europa League final.
"He was outstanding in the big games for me when I was there. He looks after himself, he's a wonderful professional and he has good experience."
Toure is looking forward to getting started in Glasgow having spent spells in three of England's football hotbed cities.
"I played with Brendan when he was at Liverpool and when we spoke about the chance for me to come here I was really happy because we know each other for a long time now," he told Celtic TV.
"We've worked together and he's a top manager. For me it's a privilege to come and work with him again."
"I have been playing for top clubs and I'm used to the challenge and I'm here to give everything I've got to win my place. You can only win your place on the pitch and that's through hard work, dedication and determination and I'm ready for that."
